Police had to intervene after a rally against Covid-19 vaccine mandates and government restrictions clashed with counter-protesters over the weekend in Boston, Massachusetts.
Organizers behind the main protest – dubbed Rise Against Tyranny – said they were demonstrating against “vaccine passports, face diapers, mass layoffs, and unconstitutional mandates.” Counter-protesters, however, tried to drown out the anti-mask crowd trying to play music at the event through speakers or with a full brass band in attendance.
NOW: Clashing rallies on Boston Common; one group here to protest mask/vaccine mandates with speeches, the other protesting the protesters with a brass band. @NBC10Boston @NECN pic.twitter.com/cuSavwE6WI
